Alexis Sanchez determined to leave Manchester United after being dropped for Young Boys victory

Sanchez in happier times with Arsenal

Chilean superstar, Alexis Sanchez is closer than ever to an early exit from Manchester United following his latest snub by Jose Mourinho.

The Chilean was dropped from the squad for United’s CL victory over Young Boys on Tuesday night.

Sanchez only joined United in January, as part of a swap deal with Arsenal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but does not feel he has a future at the club under Mourinho.

He was back at training on Thursday, as United gathered following the last-minute 1-0 win over the Swiss minnows.

Sanchez was pictured driving into Carrington, sipping from a cup of mate tea – a delicacy loved by South American players – and wearing a rather grim expression.

He is said to be keen on a move to Paris Saint-Germain, who are one of the only clubs able to afford anywhere close to his bumper deal at Old Trafford.

The forward, who is paid £350,000 plus bonuses, is easily the highest paid player at the club.

After the victory on Tuesday, Mourinho confirmed that Sanchez was not injured, effectively confirming publicly that the player had been dropped.

He said: ‘No, Sanchez is not injured. But it’s quite curious you always speak about the ones that are not playing.’

Mourinho was also pictured arriving at Carrington on Thursday, being driven from his base at the Lowry Hotel as usual, turning away from the cameras, perhaps contemplating a first meeting with Sanchez since his verbal barb at the 29-year-old Chilean.

Sanchez was unveiled to great fanfare last January after the swap with Mkhitaryan was confirmed, but he has failed to live up to expectation.

He has scored just four times in 30 appearances for the Red Devils, with just one goal in the 2018-19 season.
